This ancient fortified Chateau dating back to the 12th Century has remained the property of the same family since its origins and is today the symbol of the village of Rully.

The origin of "La Pucelle" comes from the way the land was divided in the family: the youngest daughter (a virgin in comparison with her elder sisters) was also given a plot as an inheritance.

The vineyard estate covers nowadays over 12 hectares, producing about 60% of Premiers Crus.

Rully 1er Cru La Pucelle covers 1.6ha (around 4 acres).


Subtle differences in the wines are due to differences in soil, exposure and altitude, all of which vary considerably hereabouts. At heights of 230-300 metres, the hill-slopes produce wines which can compete with the best wines of the nearby Côte de Beaune. The Chardonnay grape prefers a clay-limestone soil.
